Tranquility

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 7:35 am

Good morning to all on a rather warm start to the day here in Osterville, Massachusetts on Cape Cod!  The weather has been cooperating the past few days, and the forecast is for a few showers, with abundant sunshine tomorrow.  There is very little going on at 5 a.m. when I make my way to the ocean in the morning, the little village of Osterville is dark and silent, peaceful and oblivious to the outside world.  In fact, by the time you are on the water, you seem to be in a wholly different world than the one of t.v.’s, radios, ipods, blackberries, computers, and other distractions that take one out of the moment.  That is primarily why I spend so much “time” on Nantucket Sound.  Perhaps it is true too, that having lived out west, both California and Colorado, traveling through the deserts of Utah and Nevada, where water is in such short supply, being around such an abundant supply of H20 propels me to a place of peace that one only finds on the open seas.  I know I am not the only one who feels the way I do about this country.  How much I love it and care so deeply about it’s future.  Moreover, I also know I am not alone in my concern about the climate we are leaving to future generations.  As the bull____ begins in earnest, with the recent Supreme Court decision regarding campaign contributions, i.e. corporate bribery, the truth will be harder and harder to find.  Independent voices will be few and far between, and the truth will be hard to discern from the false.  I went through the five stages of grieving lately in regard to both of these issues, climate change and the first ammendment fiasco, and I have to tell you I might accept the fact that “Justice” John Roberts sold out his fellow countrymen for a big check from big oil, but I don’t have to like it, nor be silent about it.  Mark these words that are written now– in the coming months you will see an avalanche of subtle seed money from big corporate entities, disguised in sheep’s clothing, and, from said monies, will arise dirty politicians whose only aim is improving the bottom line of the corporation who put them into the United States Senate, the United States House of Representatives or God forbid, the White House itself.  I know I am not the only one who feels this is a dangerous time for the country that we all love.  I know I am not the only one who prays that this country wakes up.  I know I am not alone on this.  Writing in the dark, before the sun has risen sometimes brings doubts.  However, when I dig down deep, I find the courage that comes from a source unmanifested and within that source, that we all share, is the Love and Joy that make us who we truly ARE.  Somehow, I pray that someone gets the message.  Have a nice Tuesday!  Peace~ M
